    We’re back from a visit to Kentucky! Our first order of business was to get my best friend, Jenny, married to her knight in shining armor, Brett. I don’t have a photo of her as bride (since I was a bridesmaid and was carrying a bouquet of flowers in lieu of my camera or iPhone). But here she is a couple of years ago posing with another knight in shining armor.

    This morning at 3:30 am California time, I snuck downstairs to watch the Royal Wedding on live TV. And just as the princess-to-be arrived at Westminster Abbey, another princess awoke in her crib. That princess’s mother (you know, the QUEEN – har har) decided to get her up, and together Eleanora and I watched the wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine.

    Over the past several weeks, The Hubs and I have been to THREE fabulous weddings celebrating the unions of some of our closest friends. Here are some highlights from the joyful occasions.


    Jenny & Art were married at the Adamson House, a gorgeous estate nestled by the Pacific Ocean.

    Lots of colors everywhere…

    And there was dining al fresco, by the ocean, with beautifully decorated tables. Each table was a little bit different. I totally stole a peony off of one at the end of the night.

    Bollywood-style dancers!

    The crowd was SO. INTO. IT.

    But Art & Jenny weren’t so sure about THIS part:

    Dinner was a better moment.


    Melissa & Mark said their I do’s at Trinity Episcopal Church and celebrated afterwards at the Four Seasons Biltmore. This is the same hotel where The Hubs and I got engaged, and it’s pretty amazing.

    I love a church wedding. This was the first one we’d been to since our own 🙂

    The groom watches the bride coming down the aisle…

    Mark & Melissa were shuttled around in style.

    The bride loved her Louboutins. Can you blame her??

    They had hilarious life-size cut-outs made of themselves, which, fortunately, made their way to the dance floor.


    Does it get any better than historic Charleston? More on that later. Mary Beth & Marty made it official at the Palmer Home, a stunning bed & breakfast perched right on the Battery.

    Hot pink accents everywhere…

    The Palmer Home’s Battery view offered the perfect backdrop. During the reception, a light rain began to fall while the sun was still shining, and a gorgeous rainbow stretched itself across the sky over the Cooper River. It was like their wedding day winked at them. Of course I didn’t have my camera on hand at that moment, so you’ll have to take my word for it.

    Below, the bride and groom are sitting on a joggling board — a super fun seat you see on porches all over Charleston. This was Marty’s wedding gift to Mary Beth. He even put hot pink bows on it. Good boy.


    All gone 🙁

    And a sparkler send-off.

    Congratulations and best wishes to Mr. & Mrs. Lyons, Mr. & Mrs. Marinaccio, and Mr. & Mrs. Richard!!!
